Quick, come take our picture | PSF


The girls were playing in their rooms when I heard a "mommy" call.  Usually, that means, somebody has something that isn’t theirs, somebody is getting their hair pulled, or somebody has their teeth in their sibling’s skin.

Then, I heard the rest; "mommy, come take our picture.  Quick, mommy."

And, I grabbed my camera and ran upstairs to find my two sweet girls cuddling on each other in the glider.  The glider that I nursed them both in, sang to them both in and comforted them both in almost every night for at least the first 18 months of their lives.

Sisters in a chair

I wonder if that same scenario is how this picture was captured of my sister and me twenty-some-odd years ago?  Something tells me it was pretty similar.

Apparently, we have a gene that makes us pose oldest on one side, youngest on the other, too!


Maybe in another twenty-some-odd years I will have a picture of my girls hanging out side-by-side in a pool.

  2. Oh my goodness…how cute! Your pictures are so similar!

  3. Awe, that is soooo sweet. I am surprised how light your hair was as a child! Nat is looking so much older lately…I thought that when I saw her Wednesday too. (And I feel the same about Charlie…those baby days are disappearing!)

  4. Very adorable!

    Holy smokes! Your sister looks just like your youngest daughter!

    (My little brother and I NEVER cuddled, incidentally)

  9. I LOVE this! There is something about sister posts that just gets to me. Maybe because I love my two sisters so much? Or maybe because Karys REALLY wants a sister? I don’t know, but I love seeing your girls together. And you and Em too of course!

  10. Okay that is the sweetest! Don’t you just love nice surprises like that!

    Y’all really do all look alike…it is just lovely!

  12. Those are great, definately funny that you are always on the right in them.

  13. I think you’ll definitely have to have the girls take a picture by the pool someday. These belong in an album, side by side. 🙂

  14. You have to make a point of doing it in the future for comparison! How adorable!
